About

See the highly anticipated production of Long Day’s Journey into Night, starring Brian Cox in the lead role, at the Wyndham’s Theatre.

Experience what  is considered the greatest American play of the 20th century, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Eugene O’Neills. Immerse yourself in the tangled web of chaotic family relationships inspired by the author’s own experiences.

What is Long Day's Journey into Night about?

It’s the summer of 1912 in the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family, a household not without its own struggles. Follow a day in their life as a series of relationships unfold, with a  mix of love, hate, betrayal and addiction. As the day progresses, the family becomes involved in a series of bitter arguments and revelations, exposing resentments and unspoken truths that have long been buried under the surface.

Take a deep  dive into the lives of the Tyrone family members: James, the patriarch and aging actor; Mary, the fragile matriarch battling addiction; Jamie, the cynical and alcoholic eldest son; and Edmund, the compulsive and idealistic younger son.

In the midst of this tumultuous night, the play highlights moments of tenderness and vulnerability in the face of the family's insurmountable struggles, as the wounds of the past are laid bare. Considered the greatest American play of the 20th century, Long Day's Journey into Night continues to resonate with audiences today, exploring themes of love, loss and the search for identity.
